The Proposal (The Proposition #2) by Katie Ashley


From Goodreads

In the weeks following Aidan’s betrayal, Emma has tried her best to move on. Ignoring his countless texts, voice mails, and flowers, she isn’t sure she wants to be won back by him. But Aidan isn’t going down without a fight—especially not until Emma lets him reveal the secret of his past that caused him to be so commitment phobic.

But fate intervenes when premature labour forces Emma on strict bed rest for two weeks. Aidan steps forward with a shocking proposal. To prove his love and commitment for her and their unborn son, he will take a leave of absence from work to care for her around the clock. Vowing to guard her heart, Emma reluctantly agrees.

While she is touched by Aidan’s attentiveness and tender loving care, Emma is thrown for a loop by the amorous attentions of ER doctor, Alpesh “Pesh” Nadeen. Pesh is everything Emma could ever want—successful, stable, and ready to settle down and be a husband and father. Pesh wants nothing more than to win Emma’s heart, but she is not sure she’s able to give it.

Her heart may still belong to the very man who broke it—the one who is so desperately trying to win her back.

My thoughts

I gave this a 6/10 or 3 stars. I devoured this quite quickly, it was an easy read that kept you engrossed in the lives of Aidan and Emma.

I must once again say that I would have given this a better rating had the proof reading and editing been handled better. I wasn't happy with the first book in the series for the same reason, but purchased this one as I wanted to know how things ended up between the two lead characters.

Love never runs smoothly and as we are taken on a relationship roller coaster with Aidan and Emma, we realise that they both have bridges to cross before they can attain the happy ever after that we the reader long for. No one likes to see people that are clearly in love with one another going their own separate ways and hurting one another.

As Emma attempts to cope with her pregnancy on her own with the support of her friends, her family and Aidan's family. She has decisions that only she can make as to the future of all three of them.

Whilst, this is the second in the series the third one focuses on two of the other characters from the first two books. I do not feel a need to read any further as in my opinion the story is over between Aidan and Emma.
